Day Dreamer by Michael Roberts is a story of how some people and some life events have a lasting impression on us. As we follow a young man as he grows up and becomes an adult, we look into his life as he would. We follow his actions, his mind and his daydreams, and we also see the world through his eyes. This is the story of Michael, a daydreamer. He became a daydreamer when a life threatening event led to him believing that he was saved by an angel. While he knows there is bad and good in the world, he believes that his angel is always with him to save him and bring happiness into his life. He loves his daydreams and the world he has created there, not wanting to leave! Kelly Lynn has always been in his life to guide him and protect him. While he daydreams, Kelly makes sure that Michael has enough happiness to live life to its fullest. Happiness is good for the soul, but is Michael’s happiness real?
Daydreaming is an escape that we all do so connecting with Michael was not difficult. I could sympathize and empathize with him. However, for me, the real hero of the story was Kelly. She kept him grounded and was ready to fight for him. The chemistry between these two was awesome from the very beginning. She was his guardian angel, the one person in his life who was constantly with him and helping him through the good and bad times. She brought substance to the story and I loved her for that. The story is unique and interesting; I enjoyed how the author was able to transition the story from daydreams to real life events without compromising the flow of the story and keeping the integrity of the characters. This is a thought provoking novel, one that made me rethink what my daydreams mean.
